NAME    [Toc]    [Back]

     pthread_rwlockattr_setpshared, pthread_rwlockattr_getpshared - set/get a
     read-write	lock attribute object's	process-shared attribute

C SYNOPSIS    [Toc]    [Back]

     #include <pthread.h>

     int pthread_rwlockattr_setpshared(pthread_rwlockattr_t *attr,
	  int pshared);

     int pthread_rwlockattr_getpshared(const pthread_rwlockattr_t *attr,
	  int *opshared);

DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]

     These functions manipulate	the initialized	read-write lock	attribute
     object attr [see pthread_rwlockattr_init()].

     The function pthread_rwlockattr_setpshared() sets the process-shared
     attribute value of	the read-write lock.  The attribute value may be

     The function pthread_rwlockattr_getpshared() returns the process-shared
     attribute value of	attr via opshared.  The	default	value is

     A read-write lock with a process-shared attribute of
     PTHREAD_PROCESS_PRIVATE may only be operated on by	threads	created	within
     the same process as the thread which initialized the read-write lock.

     A read-write lock with a process-shared attribute of
     PTHREAD_PROCESS_SHARED may	be operated on by any thread that has access
     to	the memory where the read-write	lock is	allocated, even	if the readwrite
 lock	is allocated in	memory that is shared by multiple processes.

DIAGNOSTICS    [Toc]    [Back]

     The read-write lock attribute process-shared functions return zero	on
     success; otherwise, an error number is returned:

     [EINVAL]	    The	attribute value	specified by pshared is	invalid.
